****Be sure to have a scrap of paper while you hop to write down the number of your favorite Punch(es). When you finish the hop and return to Just Imagine Crafts. You'll get an additional ballot when you list your favorite punch number(s) in the comments section. We would love to hear what you think!!! ****

Welcome to my post for the Just Imagine/Kreaxions Blog Hop!  You might have come here from Jess's blog.  Here is my card for the hop.  I also used the Unscripted sketch for this week as my inspiration.

I used Kreaxions 4-in-1 Punch #903.  I used that punch to punch the four corners on the square accent and I also punched a black border that is just peeking out from behind the band of patterned paper.  The patterned papers are Vintage Linen from the For The Record collection by Echo Park. 
Here is a close-up of the punched areas and that adorable little butterfly is also a punch by Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions. 
To help you understand better what I mean by a 4-in-1 punch, I used the included, removable plates to show you the four different looks you get from one punch.  Each of the other 4-in-1 punches work this same way. 
Comment on my blog for a chance at a random draw to win this same 4 in 1 Kreaxion punch from my blog.  It will be donated by Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions Punches.

Also if you play along and follow our rules for the June Challenge and post your project this weekend during the blog hop time allotted, you get an extra ballot to the main draw.
If you didn't start at the beginning of the blog hop be sure to go back there if you get lost along the way. Some members are playing on Saturday, some won't be playing until Sunday.
From here, hop on over to Lisa's blog to see what she has created and for another chance to win a prize.

Hope you had fun ... we sure enjoyed having all of you visit us. Thanks everyone and have a great weekend.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Linda, it's a lovely card! Thanks for doing the diagram to show how the punch was used. The border is actually reminiscent of fancy rick-rack lace! The butterfly punch is super sweet in its waviness. Too bad it is no longer available - it would be my favorite! LOL
